Jet-intracluster medium interaction in Hydra A - I. Estimates of jet velocity from inner knots

Nawaz (Saleh), Muhammad; Wagner, A. Y.; Bicknell, Geoffrey; Sutherland, Ralph; McNamara, B. R.


We present the first stage of an investigation of the interactions of the jets in the radio galaxy Hydra A with the intracluster medium. We consider the jet kinetic power, the galaxy and cluster atmosphere and the inner structure of the radio source. Analysing radio observations of the inner lobes of Hydra A by Taylor et al. we confirm the jet power estimates ~1045 erg s-1 derived by Wise et al. from dynamical analysis of the X-ray cavities. With this result and a model for the galaxy halo, we...[Show more]
